Expanding Our Palates- Cooking at Del Mar Lincoln
By Valerie Kelly & Stephanie Collett
At our Del Mar Lincoln center, our students channeled their own inner Gordon Ramsay by trying a few different recipes for National Nutrition Month. We asked each of the children what they enjoyed the most about the process and results, and here’s what they had to say!
- Share one thing that you liked about the cooking demonstration.
Andy- “I liked when we had to crush the crackers and season it.”
Oscar- “I liked using the cooking utensils and learning about what each utensil does.”
Rosslyn- “I liked how the food came out and how delicious it was.”
Dulce- “I liked eating the cheese.”
- Share one thing you learned from the cooking demonstration.
Andy- “I learned that garlic is really sticky when it gets on your hands.”
Rosslyn -“I learned how to make the dipping sauce.”
Dulce -“how to shred cheese”
- Share one thing you would do differently with the recipe or the foods we used.
Andy- “One thing I would’ve done differently is use different foods. I want to cook something that includes meat, pepper, corn, and asparagus or broccoli.”
Oscar -“What I want to do differently is make something different like dessert. I want to make chocolate chip cookies.”
Rosslyn -“I would’ve used more lemon, salt, and pepper in the ingredients.”
Dulce- “I want to make something with strawberries and chocolate.”
